Monster

With most of their projects Design Partners go through a process of creating a model that they call ‘the monster’, a hybrid object of form and functionality. The History Chair monster certainly lived up to its name: an oversized, inelegant, clunky, chunky mass of pitch pine. Whittled down by Cathal and Peter, it starts to morph into something somewhat more elegant, although with only one half carved it looks like a very strange hybrid.
